Allen Ray Mefford is accused of shooting a friend who'd just arrived at his home yesterday afternoon.
Investigators are now trying to figure out why. Authorities haven't said if the two men have any history of trouble together. Neighbors we spoke with were not aware of any problems and were shocked by the crime.
"I heard this big bang and I said to myself that's a 12 gauge going off somewhere,” said Mefford’s neighbor Brian Stevens. “Went to the bathroom. I mean I didn't know what it was until I heard the sirens come 10 to 15 minutes later."
There will be a bond hearing Wednesday morning. Authorities are expected to ask that Mefford’s bond be denied.

State officials to hold seat belt campaign event

SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (AP) -- The Governor's Highway Safety Office plans to announce its "Click It or Ticket" campaign on Friday.
The event is scheduled to take place at 1 p.m. at the Robertson County Courthouse in Springfield.
Nationally, statistics show seat belt use increased significantly in 2012 as compared to 2011 among drivers, right-front passengers and backseat occupants.
However, officials say more than 400 of Tennessee's crash fatalities last year involved unrestrained drivers or passengers.
The Governor's Highway Safety Office urges all motorists to buckle up.
